France 1932 127 mins. In French

Marius (Pierre Fresney) and Fanny (Orane Demazis), two young shopkeepers on Marseille’s harborfront, always seemed destined to marry, but Marius cannot overcome his urge to break free and voyage on the open sea. His father, César, is oblivious to the crisis, as is Honoré Panisse, the aged widower also vying for Fanny’s hand—until Fanny, knowing Marius’s happiness lies in the balance, changes their lives forever. In French with English subtitles.
